Bingo Sunday 16th October 2022






In support of everyone locally in the North East area and at a national level climbing and walking today, in support of Charlie Bird and raising much needed funds for The Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA) and Pieta House, Our combined Training Band and Intermezzo Ensemble, with support from Jennny Satelle and Darren Kirk, under the baton of Jayne Healy performed and recorded Ain’t No Mountain High Enough (Video below 👇)

The climb/activity will be an immense challenge for someone with MND but their determination will highlight the vast mountains ⛰️ so many people have to climb in their everyday lives due to severe illness, physically and mentally.

This campaign is encouraging everyone to ‘Climb With Charlie’, meaning not just climbing physical mountains, but getting through all the serious challenges in their lives.

Good night and Joy be with you all”

It is with great sadness this evening that we learned of the passing of our musical colleague and much loved friend Vincent McArdle

Vincent was one of the finest French horn players in the country and one of our most committed band members, but more than this he was an absolute gentleman. His passing has left us all deeply shocked and saddened.

We would like to send our sincere condolences to the McArdle family from all of us here in his band family.

May He Rest In Peace
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis.
